15 Mar 2015 – Stathern Duathlon

As a bit of a change to the normal running events six Striders and two potential new recruits made up part of a 142 strong field for this year’s Stathern Duathlon.  A well organised event made up of a 5K run, 18K bike and final 5K run that includes the infamous Mill Hill climb right at the beginning of the bike leg.
First Strider home was Simon Bottrill in 1:21:37 closely followed by Mike Bryan in 1:21:58 then Andy Nicholls  in 1:30:43, John Houghton in 1:33:22, Tony Allen on his debut race in a Striders shirt in 1:35:00, James Bryan  in 1:35:37 and Gary Christmas in 1:37:31 competing along with his son Daniel who beat him in time of 1:30:09.  [Simon]
